    Just curious, how many calories per day are you all eating? MFP allows only 1280 for me for a 1 lb a week loss. But I am finding it hard to eat only that. Feel hungry a lot.

    Just curious, how many calories per day are you all eating? MFP allows only 1280 for me for a 1 lb a week loss. But I am finding it hard to eat only that. Feel hungry a lot.

    When I get lighter, I get fewer calories too. To compensate, I work out so I can eat more. A 45 minute walk can yield me an extra 300 calories. I also try to not break fast until as late in the morning as I can make it. I always feel like once I start eating, I've woken the beast and this can result in wanting to eat more. Some people do intermittent fasting where you eat from say 10am to 5pm then no more. You can retrain your body this way.

    Edited to say: I currently eat 1200-1680 calories depending on how hungry I am. MFP allows me 1680 to loose 1.5 lbs a week.

    It allows me 1200 calories for a 1lb reduction. Maybe you could go to half a pound if more sustainable? Not good being hungry, unless you mean just before meals - I quite like that part of eating a bit less as I really appreciate my meals!

    Memyselfandi59 my calories allowance was similar, with 1/2 -1 lb loss a week.

    It's not a lot but I'm ok with smaller sustainable loss , however the calorie limit is quite hard to incorporate even fruit as a snack I feel.

    I changed mine yester and I'm going to allow myself 1400 / day, see how it goes.

    Good luck 🤞

    My name is Donna. I am 61 years old, 5' 5" tall. I live in the Midwest of USA. I am in remission for breast cancer, have Type 2 Diabetes, an under active thyroid, a touch of high blood pressure, some osteoporosis and am working to get healthier. I know losing weight and exercising more will help all of these issues.

    CHALLENGE TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS GOAL: Total Loss of 15 pounds to land at 176.5 (Wow! That sounds like a dream. But…dreams do come true!)
    CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT (FROM Dec 31, 2021): 191.5
    CHALLENGE ENDING WEIGHT:


    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's; 150’s


    I TRY TO WEIGH ON THE 1ST AND LAST DAY OF EACH MONTH ALSO. I HAVE MADE THE GOAL OF LOSING A LITTLE MORE IN SEPT AND OCT AND KEEPING IT A LITTLE LESS THROUGH THE NOV AND DEC HOLIDAYS (AND BAKING SEASON.) I THINK THAT 15 POUNDS OVERALL IS A MORE REALISTIC GOAL FOR ME ESPECIALLY SINCE I LIVE IN A VERY SNOWY AND ICY AREA AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND EXERCISE ARE DIFFICULT AFTER OCTOBER 1ST. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT I GET AND STAY AT A HEALTHY WEIGHT DUE TO HEALTH REASONS I WILL SHARE ALONG THE WAY. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! I AM ROOTING FOR YOU AND SUPPORTING YOU ALL 100% WE CAN DO THIS!


    Start Weight: (From Dec. 31, 2021): 191.5…..(Trend Weight: 191.7)

    Jan 01….. 190.0….. (Trend Weight: 191.5)….. . On December 31, 2020 my weight was at 207.0. I am down 15.4 pounds this year and for that I am grateful. I plan on working even harder in 2022. Happy New Year everyone!

    Jan 06….. 194.0….. (Trend Weight: 191.8)….. I am spiraling out of control very quickly and I’m quite sure it is not water weight. I have been trapped in my livingroom for 8 days with a full floor (except livingroom) flooring reno on main floor. No exercise or movement. No stove or fridge etc. Just grabbing food and choosing as best I can but mainly no calorie burn. I’ve got to turn this ship around! Flooring specialists will be back today. I am hoping that a good portion will finally be completed!
    Jan 13….. 192.8….. (Trend Weight: 192.3)….. Better than last week but I’m rocking back and forth in the same 1.5 pounds so that tells me that I need more changes and they need to stick. Watching these stack of numbers also helps see the trends. I am grateful for this challenge.


    Jan 20….. 192.6….. (Trend Weight: 193.0)….. Up & Down all week but ending with a smidgen of a loss on actual weight and a substantial increase in my trend weight. The Universe has a lack of faith in my it seems. I’ll prove it wrong!
